Keywords:Adherence, covid appropriate behavior, COVID 19, vaccination
Introduction: COVID-appropriate behavior refers to the development of those habits that may serve to limit the
disease’s spread and, thus, reduce the number of individuals affected. Vaccinated individuals may be less willing
to comply with COVID-appropriate conduct due to their perception of a diminished health risk. Consequently,
the present study was conducted to assess public’s attitude regarding COVID preventive measures following
Methodology: This cross sectional study was conducted among adults aged 18 and above. 200 individuals who
had received either both doses of COVID-19 or at least one dosage of either COVID-19 participated in this survey,
which was performed online and involved the distribution of a self-administered questionnaire via social media.
Results: Covishield was the most commonly administered vaccination (70%), followed by Covaxin (23%). The
majority of respondents adhered to mask use after vaccination (82,5%), but 15% of respondents adhered to mask
use less after vaccination than before. 2.5% of respondents reported an increase in mask use. Physical distancing
was shown to be less after vaccination among (65.5%) than before vaccination. 19% of study participants reported
that their frequency of hand washing with soap and water decreased following vaccination. 31% of respondents
said that their usage of hand sanitizer dropped following vaccination.
Conclusion: It should be stressed to the public that getting vaccination does not make them invincible foe the
various new strains in circulation of the virus. Strict policy making should be emphasized to make people follow
COVID appropriate behavior at all times.
